In our latest installment of “Get woke, go broke” series Scott Shay, chairman of troubled Signature Bank, co-hosted a company seminar last October in which employees were instructed for more than an hour on the proper use of gender-neutral pronouns such as “Ze” and “Hir.”
A new video to emerge on social media shows Shay — whose New York-based bank was shut down by regulators over the weekend in a bid to stave off a US banking crisis — alongside Finn Brigham, a corporate consultant on gender issues talking to employees about the woke practice of pronoun use.
The video presents Brigham as a “genderqueer trans masculine person,” which I don’t even know what that is.
In the hour-plus video, Shay and Brigham deliver a lecture titled “Know Your Pronouns,” part of the bank’s “Social Impact” series.
In the presentation Shay is seen bragging that Signature Bank was “the first bank in the United States to have an openly gay man on our board.”
He was referencing Congressman Barney Frank, the former Massachusetts politician who co-sponsored legislation regulating banks following the 2008 financial crisis — only to come under fire this week over his role on the board of Signature.
I’m thinking Shay’s new pronouns should be has/been.
